As adults, those evenings that we get to ourselves usually consist of slow music, a glass of wine and some much needed peace and quiet. We can all appreciate such a routine, especially in the midst of a hectic schedule. But let’s shake up that evening routine and turn it into a beauty routine. All you need is an hour or two and a few luxurious beauty products. Let’s begin.
Hop in the shower
This is so basic, but important. Imagine all that sweat, dirt and pollution that has built up over the day – you need to get rid of that for an effective, enjoyable beauty routine.
Skin Toner / Skin Tonic
A day out in the elements can wreak havoc on your skin. We usually apply a cleanser and moisturizer and then hop into bed. But we’re missing one vital element. A product that can balance your pH, remove environmental toxins form your skin and work to prevent future acne breakouts. That product is a toner, and a must-have in your evening wind-down routine. We love Pixi Glow Tonic. It’s packed with all the ingredients we love:
- Glycolic acid to exfoliate the skin
- Aloe Vera hydrates the skin
- Ginseng improves skin circulation
During the day, we sweat, we get stressed and we endure the elements – this worsens your blackheads. Let’s not forget the makeup we (ladies) apply to our face almost daily. Using a makeup wipe is good to remove makeup, and a cleanser should take care of the rest – right? Not necessarily. To be on the safe side, you need a product that specifically targets blackheads and destroys them in their tracks. We like COSRX BHA Blackhead Power Liquid, which is clinically proven to reduce blackheads and has the ingredients to back up that claim.
Most of us know that the skin beneath our eyes is more delicate than the rest of our face. To accommodate that, we may use our pinkies and gently apply moisturizer to that area. But that’s not enough! The skin beneath your eyes needs more attention than you may think. A basic moisturizer isn’t going to treat puffiness, dark circles or fine lines. That’s where an eye cream comes in handy. We like Black Tea Age-Delay Eye Concentrate particularly because it’s good for all skin types and nourishes the skin beneath your eyes in ways a basic moisturizer cannot.
It may be hard to make this an evening routine every night. If you do this four times a week, you will notice a glowing difference. But of course, you get the most out of this beauty routine when you do it every evening.
